Institute alternative is one of the signatories of the letter sent by Western Balkan civil society organizations to the President of the European Council, Mr Donald Tusk, concerning opening of the accession negotiations with Nort Macedonia and Albania in June 2019.
In the letter, NGOs and individuals express concern that further delay of the accession negotiations with North Macedonia and Albania would seriously jeopardize pro-European attitude of the population throughout the region. Furthermore, they express the hope that the European Council will keep its promise and open accession negotiations with these countries.
They also consider that these two candidate countries of the Western Balkans would bring new energy, stability and hope to the region, and that good neighbourly relations are one of the key factors for the consolidation of the Western Balkans and their faster integration into the EU.
The initiative was launched at the proposal of the European Movement in Serbia, and the letter was signed by 88 civil society organizations from Western Balkans, as well as 12 individuals from the region.
